Mud-drenched new shots depicting scenes of chaos. Looking at the screens you can actually hear the shouting..."Motor Kombat!"
...how the real-time mud changes the appearance of both vehicles and the riders, depicting some of the finest blend of particle effects and texture work here:
What I see is 39 pictures posted on Dec 1st ond out of those there are only 3 pictures that have an HUD on them and they are significantly different/degraded from the other 36 pictures which I can only assume have been taken out of a cut scene... Haven't we all been around long enough to NOT fall victim to these marketing techniques?
Looks very promising indeed. Maybe us europeans will have a reason to buy a PS3 at launch after all.
Infact, you europeans are going to be the luckiest of the lot, PS3s will be most bugs free, most features unlocked and best of all, the best of the next-gen lineup will be awaiting you...Virtua Fighter 5, Heavenly Sword, MotorStorm and even the PS2's god of war 2, so...yeah I'll be getting mine from the European launch too, as I'm planning to visit UK around March.
having seen the latest F1 interview and screenies you can certainly add that to the list!! looks increadible for a launch title if thats what it is.
And it sucks. The physics engine is the same as Saints Row. THE HAVOC engine witch is not that bad. But the flames when you blow up are the jaggiest I have ever seen since N64(funny stuff). The cars look awesome, the landscapes look like Halo 2, and the game sounds faster than it plays. No kidding if this was a 360 game I would not spend the cash. But PS3 owners should buy this because this looks like all you got for a while that is exclusive.
I'll give credit to the amount of hype it has but over all I was not impressed. It is not that great at all. I would rather play Full Auto.
MS is better than GOW and that's enough ;)
I think your FU(K' N Funny. MS has nothing to do with GOW. Why are you bringing that up? LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL Sad very sad.
u sound like my lil bro..!
fair enough, each to their own.
It's really good smooth larger textures but other than CGI shots, the few actual gameplay shots arent detailed so wait until you can pay for and maybe play a demo on the ps3 for the less than 300,000 nationwide, that have one that is.
as previously said by post 1.1 "don't be fooled by marketing technigues".
But, when all is said and done, It'll be a good game I'll bet and worthy of buying for any ps3 owner. probably not a AAA title but good non the less.
The "It's obviously CGI" comments are even more hilarious to read. All of these are in-game screenshots, and believe me, the bullet-time feature when you pause the game in the middle of a crash is pretty awe-inspiring. Especially when this happens: http://media.ps3.ign.com/me...
the game does not match the trailer. PERIOD. the actual gameplay looks nothing like the e3 trailer, and looks nothing like cgi. the game doesn't look horrible, but it sure as hell doesn't lok as good as you want to keep making it out to look.
For a game that takes more time than GoW to produce it could be better. Not bad but not so great. It´s a 2nd gen game.
I agree with DJ. Those are all in-game graphics. I downloaded the demo. My freinds and I loved it. As soon as you crash, you can watch the replay of said crash. I find it funny that THAMMER1 compares aspects of this game to N64 and downplays the physics. Have you read IGN's or Kikizo's previews? They say the exact opposite; the tracks left by one vehicle can impact the handling of another, say a motorbike going over the tracks left by one of the monster buggies. You can bank on this game having more replay value than GOW although I wouldn't go further to compare the two. Is there even a game like this on 360? It is a launch game for all territories: Japan, Europe, and US. Says who? Sony and all the gaming sites who have been previewing and reviewing the games. How can you call this game a 2nd gen game when it's launching with the PS3 in Europe? What gen game would you call PDZ on 360. Development for that game began early in the lifespan of the gamecube. Heck, Lost Planet was originally being developed for the PS2. Why don't you fanboys stick to your forums and raise hell there? I've noticed that many of you fanboys don't even post on your own 360 forums but come over to the PS3 forums to cause trouble. You all tout how many awesome games are on the 360, yet you are all on here downplaying every positive PS3 article and glorifying every negative PS3 article on this site instead of playing those awesome games on your 360s. It makes me question how great the 360 really is if you all are one here more than playing it.
we can say the same for you guys.
stick on your side too.
I have played the demo at best buy, and although the game looks great, and I havent seen anyhting like it with the AI and physics of the game ona 360, I still find it hard to believe that these pics are from in game. Where is the hud actually? I really do hope that this is the most recent build that all the critics are talking about, how its so much better than the demo's that are floating around. I really hope this is actual gameplay, but since I dont see a hud on these pics, i find it hard to believe, but I also believe this is not CGI, because it comes very close to CGI, but not quite. I just want the damn game, just the demo itself at best buy beats any finished racer on the 360. Cant wait for the final game, I already know I am gonna love it.
by the way, THAMMER1m you're a C0CK SU(KER.
No it doesn't beat any finished racer on the Xbox 360, however there isn't a mud slinger on the Xbox 360 yet so you have nothing to compare too. So don't make foolish comments ok? yeah, right.
Anyway's, it looks to be a fun game for the ps3 so I'm sure it will sell well. Not the images you see above but a good maybe 7.5 out of 10 game. This is really just a smoothed out ps2 game. They reaslly weren't able to deliver on the game as promissed w/the CGI footage. Samea s Killzone and MGS4, the over hyped CGI footage and then delivering sub par game play and graphics is just wrong. Yes, MGS4 and Killzone arent finished and from the looks of things, never will be unless there released on the Xbox 360 as it seems this is the only true powerhouse console to play game better.
and feel the fun to be had with this game.does it look like the target video.nope.but then there's nothing on 360 that comes close to the video either.gears of war is not a racing game.so let's look at pgr3 as a launch comparison.great scenery,good sensation of speed,good control and online play.but it's the same type of game we have been playing for years.race around the track,bump against the siderails and do no interaction with the backgrounds.
motorstorm gives you good speed,hilarious(it's your own fault for going to fast)crashes,great graphics,and physics that also add to gameplay.you're not stuck to the same siderails gameplay that gives you the bumper car effect.basically,you have freedom.who in their right minds would race on the top of a cliff?so that extreme nature of the gameplay adds to the funfactor.it's like burnout.i love simulations,but sometimes you want to take a vehicle to the limit with the fear of destruction hanging on your rear bumper.and that's where motorstorm excells.it's not better than pgr3.but looks as good and is as fun.
it's too bad that this game doesn't have the weather effects of F1 racing.that would have been killer!
MotoStorm looks like an PS2 game with no jaggies.
then when you drive off the side of the cliff, you should automatically lose. race over. it's no different than the games where you drive off the track and it automatically puts you back on the track. i would hope that you wouldn't drive off of a cliff racing around the streets of ny. and i have played the demo. i've said it would be fun to those that like that type of game. it does NOT match the e3 trailer or come remotely close to doing so. that is the argument. not fun, or whether it is a good game. people keep claiming it looks like the trailer, or very near the trailer, and its not even close.
The games not that great.
Looks like a Jaggy-less PS2 game.
Throwing mud and vehicels changing color isn't all that great.
thats like saying PGR3 is like an xbox game with no jaggies. you know that this game looks next gen. why do you deny it so much?
1. I like the HAVOC physics engine it is one of the best Physics engins I have ever seen.
2. I have played the demo for like 2+ hours and it was fun...."BUT" the flames when you blow up are the jaggiest I have ever seen since N64(funny stuff). *The cars look awesome, the landscapes looks like Halo 2, and the game sounds faster than it plays.*
You guys just think I hate PS3. Thats cool with me because I know you hate 360. But to be real I have played the demo and it is not as good as PS3 C0(K riders say it is.
DUDE YOU HAVE TO PLAY BEYOND TO enjoy this stuff. Beyond freaking common sence. Do not make me mail you a bag of S#!T. And your the BUTT FU(K'n (0(k Sucker around here. I was not trying to attack you or the PS3 at all. I was just giving my true opinion.
The next time you play the MOTOSTORM demo look at the flames after an explosion they really do look like N64 flames from games. They are squared off and Jaggy as hell, so its sloppy and So is your MOMS PUDDIE.
I have seen the same physics for months with more detailed destruction at higher speeds(Burn Out)
But do not forget Full Auto. Both games looked better than MOTOSTORM. That not the PS3's fualt it is the developers who make lame games.
I do like PS3 just not PS3 fan boys.
I played the demo, I wasn't like blown away by the graphics, I have a 360 and it's nothing new to see a game with good graphics, maybe i'm getting a little spoiled now I don't know. This game looks good and I would play it just to blow up and watch the care explode, that's awesome. Like in saints row I always ran around with the rocket launcher blowing up cars cause stuff went everywhere, it's cool
Some looks like replays/ingame movies, while you can tell which are actual gameplay. The gameplay pics have improved compared to the kiosks demos I've seen.
thammer who?? lol dude please go play GOW and be quiet..his soo hurt to an extend he compares it to N64..haha .Now back to the subject,playing the game in first person view really makes it closer more to that E3 trailer.
http://www.playsyde.com/new... watch around end of video
The enviroments look PS2-ish, why do you deny it so much?.
What's next-gen; is the ground and the vehicels changing color.
what about the physics? even THAMMER1 agrees that the physics are top notch. what about the scale of the game, what about the 15 cars battling it out at the same time, with excellent AI? why is it so hard to say that this is a good next gen ggame? it may not be your cup of tea, as GOW isnt really mine. i will however, say that it is an excellent game. i do enjoy it when the adverts come on TV. i even annoy my family to watch them when they come on. i just dont understand your complete dismissal of this game!
NOT REAL GAMERS.power of green and thammer never have anything good to say.the games coming out on ps3 could get "10s" and they would still act like children.real gamers saw super metroid was as fun as streets of rage.super mario bros was as fun as sonic one.street fighter 2 on snes was as fun as gunstar heroes on genesis.devil may cry on ps2 was as fun as ninja gaiden on xbox.these games aren't even on the same systems.and there's many more.but they act like children that need attention.instead of saying" hey,looks good."it's "it looks like a ps2 game or n64".that's why gamers don't want to "jump in" with these gamers.they show no maturity.if a sony fan says gears looks cool or lost planet should be fun online.in their heads it's sony sucks.the games coming out on the system sucks.when in reality,they suck.who would want to play with these people online?or even talk to them when they can't be mature?if all the microsoft fans are like them,then gamers should "JUMP OUT".
it's cool to have a difference of opinion,but your opinions are ALWAYS NEGATIVE.SAME WITH TOP GAMER.HE'LL TURN INTO A MULTISYSTEM GAMER FOR FIVE MINUTES,THEN REVERT.even if the criticism was bad it's not POSITIVE CRITICISM.something a gamer notices that would benefit the game even more.
IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE THE TARGET VIDEO.SO WHAT.PGR3 DIDN'T LOOK LIKE THE TARGET VIDEO EITHER.SAME WITH FORZA.BUT ARE THEY FUN?THAT'S WHAT YOU SHOULD BE ASKING YOURSELVES AS GAMERS.TAKE A LOOK:
DOESN'T LOOK LIKE GAMEPLAY TO ME.LOTS OF CINEMA THERE.CGI LIES FROM MICROSOFT.BUT MICROSOFT IS NOT HELD TO THE SAME STANDARDS AS SONY.I DON'T SAY NINTENDO BECAUSE THEY AREN'T PUSHING GRAPHICS.BE REALISTIC PEOPLE.
The reason is that Sony STATED that the E3 2005 CGI was gameplay! They said "GAMEPLAY" and not target video. That's a big difference. Don't get me wrong.. this latest build looks really good, but is not close to the original CGI.
Where as the Forza 2 and PGR3 CGI that you point to were never stated to be gameplay.
Here's the E3 2005 interview with a VP from Sony. Go to the 3:50 mark... That's why I get so pissed at Sony. They lie too much!
whats wrong with u sony fanatics ?.
forza aint know where near complete and the videos shown where never stated as in game lol .
same go's to pg3 .
now back to the article ,,,,
y do all the in game pics look poor ? .
the good pics r from crash clips lol this is funny same old sony [email protected]
u sony fanatics live in denial WAKE UP !!!!
is not being a fanatic.just like i liked systems from sony,nintendo,sega,nec,atari,m icrosoft,etc.people need to start liking games.no matter what the system it is on.
if anyone in their right mind believed the target videos were real,then they were stupid.i got a couple of bridges to sell in the sahara desert.
maybe some gamers are disappointed that games have not reached that level yet.and are so harsh to judge.i would love games to be at that level.but hype in the media for products is an illusion.it's never what you think it will be.you have to be realistic and wait and see.not blindly follow any of these companies.
or did Thammer just state that Full Auto 2 looks better than Motorstorm? Damn, talk about denial at it's worst. Even TesterG35 said "Sony STATED that the E3 2005 CGI was gameplay!" and posted a link that didn't work. I think what he was trying to do was paste a link from IGN where an IGN representative was interview Jack Tretton.
They talk. Videos from Sony's E3 conference are intercut while Jack and the interviewer are talking. And IGN's editors placed the Killzone trailer approximately when Jack said "Yes, that's real gameplay." The problem is that we have no idea what video Jack was looking at during the interview.
We actually discussed this video about 4 or 5 months ago. Since Resistance was the most impressive footage that everybody agreed was gameplay, that's most likely what he was shown during the interview. Either that or the Fight Night or FF7 trailers (which actually are realtime).
Support for this argument is due to the fact that not a single representative of Sony (such as Ken K, Kaz Hirai, etc) have explicitly stated "Killzone was real gameplay" or "Motorstorm was real gameplay". It was pretty much common knowledge that the trailers were target renders of what the developers felt they would be able to pull off on the hardware eventually.
Damn it DJ, you're right.. that was for KZ. Now you're gonna make me look in archives to prove you wrong :)
XBOX 360 is for GEEKS
We are all Geeks...Sounds like your in denile.
double post :P
is the best racer on any platform, but F1 gives it a run for the money. THere is no 360 game that comes close to what motorStorm offers.
THAMMER1, you're a C0CK SUCKER
You people have been arguing all this time ? Over what ? I have played the demo over a friends house , that stuff is CG. The game really doesn't look like that. Anybody who says different has not played the game. I repeat the game REALLY doesn't look like that. Just go to Wal Mart and play it. HAHAHA People are actually trying to say the game looks like that ?!?!
...about MotorStorm is the CPU work. While its really stunning to see that such a beautiful game is coming out at such early a stage of the PS3 life-cycle, even when the machine is all new, unfathomed and difficult to program for, the thing that really takes the stage alongwith the visual appeal, is the interactivity/tangibility...wh ich the 360 can only dream of. This is why IGN clearly, without any indirection, stated MotorStorm as being 'the first true step towards the next-gen'. Not even gears was accounted that for because everything in gears su(ked but the graphics. The story, the physics(HaHaHa), the gameplay, the gamelength...all su(ked big time. MotorStorm has the seamless interactivity with complete ground deformation, different behaviours on different types of soil, like muddy, wet or dry, great AI for drivers, ragdoll for players, around 16 players on screen with differeng vehicle models and each totally breakable and deformable..., insanely immense landscapes, out of this world HDR, D/L content and a promise of a sequel.
So, this early a killer app. approved by all from IGN to Kikizo to GamePro to Gamesindustry.biz...it doesn't matter what 360 fanboys think...I remember Cerula wasn't even convinced at E3 about the mud even splattered about...but now Sony has put all those fears to rest...MotorStorm is a spectacular of 'procedural synthesis', which I'm beginning to believe that 360 can only dream of, because there is not even a single, a SINGLE title on 360 that does that.
You know at least try not to sound like such a fanboy. Its fine that you think Motorstorm looks great, but then try to spin IGN's quotes on Motorstorm as a shot against GOW is pathetic. GOW has awesome reviews from IGN, 1UP, Gamepro, so its PROVEN.
Wait for the reviews for Motorstorm before you open your mouth about how next-gen it is.
There were plenty of games like this before 4x4 Evolution etc. that all bombed, before calling Motorstorm a killer app lets see the released and reviewed finished article. stopping the game at the point of impact then showing the crash in slow motion from a different angle is not gameplay, with burnout we've already seen this before, hardly innovative and original is it! the screen's with the hud running behind the car look pretty average to me.
